      Are you expecting sapphire on a $300 Seiko auto?

      • No but they should have it once the RRP is $600-700 so on sale probably worth paying another hundred. It's always the same with Seikos tho, bit overpriced and paying for the name, old movements and crappy bracelets most of the time.

      If you love the design, want to have fun and learn a few things along the way, the Seiko modding scene is huge. Aftermarket sapphire crystals for the SKX007/SKX009 are compatible with the SRPD. Bezels and inserts for the SKX007 should also fit.

      Or buy them pre-modded, like the Islander #ISL-44: https://longislandwatch.com/islander-automatic-dive-watch-is...

      • So their watches are modded Seikos? How on earth do they do them so cheaply?

        • Yes, like most micro-brands they use Seiko automatic movements and cases and mod the rest. The price difference comes because micro-brands don't have to pay all the overheads, advertising and middlemen. It's a direct to consumer model.

      • Those look good, better spec than most Seikos and get sapphire crystal. Reminds me of zelos watches with the nice coloured faces.

        Plenty of parts on seikomod if you want to mod or upgrade components, doesn't really work out that cheap but would be worth upgrading the crystal sometimes if the mineral gets scratched up. Could even get a Seiko dial ha

      I believe Creation Watches are a Singapore based grey market supplier and unsure of the warranty. Starbuy is a local supplier that offers 3 years warranty from Seiko.

        I have no skin in the game here but I think they are okay on warranty:

        https://www.creationwatches.com/products/index.php?main_page...

        I bought a Tag from them and they paid for return shipping via DHL when I had an issue.

        Pretty sure they're authorised for Seiko.

        They claim to be on their website, and I've had Seiko Melbourne accept a warranty claim that on a watch that I bought from Creation Watches.

        https://www.creationwatches.com/products/index.php?main_page...

      • Local warranty is 3 years, Seiko Boutique is 5 years, and grey is 1 year. Don't tell them is grey on the phone, just that you have a warranty.

      • Also check Sky watches in Singapore.
        My Seiko 5 turned up ok but was stuck in Aus for ages due to Aust post

      That's where I got mine. I would probably pay the extra $15 for local support in case of any problems. That being said I'm happy with mine.

      • Yeah likely to have no issues and maybe only 1y warranty. They are pretty good on pricing, but couldn't get the snkl23 easily from elsewhere.

        • On the link I posted above it states:

          "All listed watches on CreationWatches.Com are 100% authentic and come with a warranty.

          This is either:

          Our two-year extended worldwide warranty;
          A one or two-year international manufacturer warranty."

          So it's whatever Seiko offer or their own 2 year warranty.

    Has anyone changed their bracelet to a jubilee bracelet?

    If so, any recommendations? Thanks!

    I've always had great service from Deepak at Starbuy…

    • Same here

  • Aren't Seiko 5s meant to be around $100? Or are there different tiers of Seiko 5s?

    • +1

      You're referring to the older generation of Seiko 5s the new ones or relatively newer range (about 2-3 years old) goes usually for around $200 to $300 during sales.

      • Ah, is there a reason for this? Movement same?

        Have the older 5s been discontinued or still available to buy?

        • The current Seiko 5 range sells for ~$495 and up to $695 (😮) for the standard range through Seiko - and much cheaper elsewhere.

          The previous generation are still available to buy, sometimes as low as $100, but they use the older generation 7S26 calibre which lacks hand winding and hacking.

    • Check out the Seiko 5 snkl23 from sky watches in Singapore.. cost about $116

  • What! no budget Hulk jokes ?

    Just got mine from amazon, what a beaut this thing is

    • +1

      Nice one! Always looks better in real life/your own photos rather than stock photos for some reason. It's like the manufacturer's try their best to take shitty photos.

      Congrats on your watch!
